Heidi Klum

She Couldn't Take

Seal's Temper Anymore

1/24/2012 12:14 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Heidi Klum and SealHeidi Klum is divorcing Seal largely because she has had it with his volcanic temper ... TMZ has learned.

Sources directly connected with the couple tell us ... Heidi's decision to divorce Seal has nothing to do with a third person. There is NO issue of infidelity.

But Seal's inability to control his anger has become too much for Heidi to take, in no small part because it's affecting their children.

TMZ broke the story that Heidi will divorce Seal, and we've learned this was not a snap decision. As one source said, "It was a long time in coming."

We're also told ... their careers also played a part in Heidi's decision. She has become a mega-entrepreneur and extremely rich, and that professional evolution has created a distance between them.

For his part, Seal has a new album coming out and he's about to launch an international tour.

We're told Heidi and Seal are still living under the same roof, but that will change very soon.

update_bar
Heidi's rep told PEOPLE that the couple was separating, but as TMZ first reported, Heidi wants a divorce. The couple says, "We have had the deepest respect for one another throughout our relationship and continue to love each other very much, but we have grown apart."

Watch out Heidi    

This looks like a possible setup for an OJ repeat. Seal won't remove the ring and has a temper. Will he accept Heidi being with another man? Doubt it. Run Heidi run.

Heidi has become so rude and full of herself since she is on project runway I can't stand her. If you watch her reaction when the judges disagree with her you can see she may be the one with anger problems.She disagrees with Nina all the time. Seal always seems nice he also seems to be a better parent. I am a fan of project runway but I wish they would get rid of her .

Figures    

OJ had a temper too. She ought to get out of that house before he slices her head off. But of course this was initially (anger, moodiness) what made her so infatuated with the black man in the first place. I guarantee you he next will be a white guy. Once black never back? Ha I have known too many white women that say "never again!!"

interracial couples usually have racial barriers to break when they first get together, but i have theory that when they get angry with one another, the whole dynamic changes. ican see heidi calling seal 'a black scarfaced bastard' and seal calling heidi 'a skinny no-eating white honky bitch'. this got me to wondering what other celeb couples might say to each other when they argue. if jay-z forgets to take out the garbage would beyonce call him 'a round head bubble-lipped bastard' or he calls her 'a nappy-headed weave-wearing hoe'. would katie holmes tell tom cruise 'to get your short ass outta here and don't use the doggie door this time. maybe someone could think of others

3 things you can learn from Heidi Klum and Seal’s split

It’s over. This always so smitten, head-over-heals in love couple is calling it quits. They seemed to have it all: good looks, fame, fat bank account. They were getting on your last nerves! They renewed their vows every year in a lavish ceremony, while you and your husband could barely afford the plastic cups and cheap wine when you said “I do” 20 years ago. Whenever Heidi had a baby she went back to work the next day, looking phenomenal. You? Still with a wide waist and little BJ is already 10 years old. After pots of vaseline those stretch marks continue to stare at you in the mirror. And she gave birth to 4 or 5 (who’s counting?).
And don’t get me started about perfect husband Seal. Heidi couldn’t stop bragging about him every chance she got. She made you sick to the stomach when she was almost drooling, telling how romantic he was, great with the kids, supportive, yada yada yada. You look at your husband, Slob Bob, sprawled on the couch with a bag of potato chips on his swollen belly and you can’t help but feel slightly disgusted. You bet Seal, with his fine self, always put the toilet seat down. He gave Heidi a flower after every breath, while you’ve never gotten a single rose in your 20 years of marriage.
But now all this is over. Done. Kaput. You want to know why. You never saw it coming. No warnings from People magazine. Did Seal finally saw Heidi without make-up? They were married almost 7 years. Was it the 7 years itch they were tired of scratching? Maybe she got weary of organizing those renewal ceremonies every single year. Come on, who can maintain that for a life time? Actually, the why doesn’t really matter. What matters is, what did you learn? You can learn 3 things from the split.
1. Things don’t always are as they seem. Sometimes, the grass only looks greener at the other side, but it’s just plastic grass from Home Depot. Don’t be jealous of other couples. You may wish your husband was like somebody else’s husband, but you don’t know the whole story.
2. Being madly in love is not enough to sustain a marriage. It sounds like a cliché, but marriage really is hard work. You can’t be on the top all the time. You’ll have valleys so deep that you wonder if you’ll ever get out.
3. Cherish what you have. Slob Bob, eh, your husband, knows you like no other and still loves you, warts and all after 20 years. Yes, he forgets to put the toilet seat down and is a little too soft in the middle, so what? Let’s face it, you’re no Heidi Klum either.
